    I really think this is the page that was found to be phony in another forum. Will try to find it.

    Well... there you go. Lol

    Why would anyone think this is serious when it has only 300 some people liking it? Anything Verizon does will have well over that amount.

    I was at Best Buy today and they confirmed it will be in on the 24th! I can pre-order for 50.00 and have my name put on one. They'll issue a gift card and the phone is mine when it comes in on the 24th. Since they wont have a live version to play with, I can still go to my local Verizon store and check it out before I commit. The Best Buy phone will be held for me until I pick it up and I'm not even obligated if for some reason I decide not to get it. Very convenient!!

    It was brought up that the Facebook page mentioned is a fake, and I agree. But the 24th is still a solid date.

    I just hope nobody in my area reads these forums. ;) I will be as close to first in line at VZW as I can. I have two stores within 3 blocks of each other and they are right down the street from my job. I will let my boss know I will be leaving and coming back with a big sheet eating grin. :0

    I would support your boys at Best Buy but I want to put it on my VZW bill and VZW is throwing me a $25.00 bone since i'm too far away from my ne2.

    1st be polite, 2nd let them know how long you have been a customer and how much you would love to get this phone. 3rd leave a seed of doubt that you wont upgrade uless they can help you out with the price difference. The above steps should land you a small discount after you make the purchase.

    Oh, no I pay $224.99 unless I get it on 1yr. I failed to mention I am in the window for an annual upgrade, it's my ne2 that is 15 May 2011. My sons line has an annual on 15 March but they wont move the date for me. I haven't pushed too hard yet though. I hate to waste my ne2 line for just an annual upgrade but if I go for 1 year it wont cost me an extra $70.00 with the $25.00 discount they are gonna throw my way.

    You think there will be more than 2 people in line.. unlike the iPhone launch? :p
    I wonder if Verizon will call all it's employees in to handle this.
    Sorry, I can't resist laughing at 25 employees to serve 2 in line :D

    I wonder why Verizon got rid of all early upgrades. My friend tried to get her early upgrade for her line (she's on a 2 year plan) and they weren't buying it but they'd let me upgrade with my stepdad's upgrade, because he's been a customer for like ever....but I wonder why. It makes no sense to me.

    So my local VZW store sent me an upgrade postcard for both my lines. My primary will is actually up in July and the secondary is up now. However he listed as both being upgradeable, is this a typo or can this be done? I dont quite understand VZW new upgrade policy
